the community desperately wanted an open phone, and thousands of openmoko neos and freerunners were purchased. the problem was the 1 day battery life. as well as a few problems with the GSM radio. the iphone is the next best device.

Except this beast was 110baud. But time sharing systems in those days weren't much faster (IBM 1401 series, Honeywell 200 series, early IBM360). It was a TTY33 in a case with wheels and an acoustic coupler (connecting wires to AT&T's network in those days was strictly verboten). It weighed about 90 pounds (or at least felt like 90 #).

The first 300baud units were lugable but used thermal paper on a roll.
